Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attend 1st public event since revealing engagement

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attend 1st public event since revealing engagement”

Prince Harry officially announced his engagement to the American actress following one year of dating on November 27.

As thousands of fans tuned in again this morning to see the couple arrive for their first day of duties in Nottingham, numerous world's designers will have also been on standby again, just in case the royal-to-be has been shopping, incognito, in one of their stores.

One of the many adorable things Prince Harry said about his new wife-to-be, Meghan Markle, during their engagement interview earlier this week was how he had no doubt she'd be "unbelievably good" at the job side of being a royal.

Just as Lady Diana did in 1981 and Kate Middleton in 2011, Meghan Markle made her first official engagement with Prince Harry by her side.

Her outfit perfectly co-ordinated with Prince Harry's - he wore a smart navy coat and cream scarf.

The couple will take a six-month tour of the country before getting married in May at Windsor Castle, the weekend residence of Harry's grandmother Queen Elizabeth II and the place where he was baptised.

Crowds gather outside the Nottingham Contemporary in Nottingham, ahead of a visit by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to a Terrence Higgins Trust World AIDS Day charity fair on their first official engagement together.

Through tears of joy, she said: "I cried - she's wonderful, and it's fantastic".

She joked: "I always thought I'd marry Harry but you can't win them all".

"As long as they're happy, that's all that matters".

He then smiled when a well-wisher shouted, from three or four rows back behind a crash barrier: "How does it feel being a ginger with Meghan?"

Ms Markle was wrapped up against the cold in a long dark blue coat by Mackage, and boots.

With no private secretary yet, she had to hold the bouquet and her handbag in the same hand but carried on greeting well-wishers.

She will also give up her work on gender equality for UN Women and take up royal charity duties instead.

She shook hands with men and women, some who had been waiting for several hours to get the chance to meet her.

They said: "Ms Markle can not wait to meet numerous young people Prince Harry has told her so much about".
